is considered a payback of sorts for an american law that was passed two weeks ago. that law puts financial restrictions on russians accused of human rights violations, bans them from also traveling to the united states. i want to bring in our matthew chance from london. and matthew, of course, you were a correspondent in moscow for a very long time here. it seems at least there's a split. you've got russia's foreign minister who actually criticized putin before he signed this ban. so what is going on here? is this a power play? and is this something that is actually going to take effect? >> i mean, you're right. there has been a very rare split in the russian political elite about this issue. there's been some criticism that was leaked to the press in russia about how some officials including the foreign minister concerned about what the impact this may have. also an opposition newspaper in russia has issued a petition, saying the law should not been enacted. that's had more than 100,000 signatures. obviously, it's something that divides russian society. but make no mistake, it is a power

year's to be signed into law. today is the 27. and so you have a few days left for lawmakers to make a deal. the president's should land at some point. there is a 5 hour time difference. they have to figure out something. it seems likely will go over the cliff. it has been looking like that before the holiday, but certainly now, particularly if you remember for congress broke for the christmas break, speaker raynor was not able to get the backup plan through his caucus, so there was no pressure on democrats to try to counter that immediately. senate democrats saying we passed a bill that raises tax rates on incomes over $250,000, we ran on this and this is what we are offering. house republicans were saying, no, we want to negotiate something, figure it out and send it to us. someone is going to have to move. the question is, who? the president met with senate majority leader harry reid before going to hawaii and his offer was to extend the tax cuts for incomes under $250,000, extend unemployment insurance benefits, and the lady across -- and then delay the across the board automati

appeasing people saying they would look and new laws and regulations, but at the heart of the issue, it is the whole mind-set. they're members of the assembly who have been charged with rape sitting in government-this has been going on for so long, the fact that women are treated as a sub costs member of society despite the fact that employee had a female prime minister. they're saying, yes, we will try to change the way they as work, but despite all of its rules and regulations, no one should enforce them. >> rebels in the central african republic are reported to be only one town away from the capital. they also want further talks with the african union. the army was forced to retreat as the rebels advanced. the former israeli foreign minister has been indicted for a breach of trust down fraud. he resigned early this month. he denies the accusations and says he will run in the upcoming elections in january but he will be forced to quit if a court barring some guilty. 30 muslims in iraq are continuing demonstrations against the shiia-led government. they are reducing the iraqi gover

how the two connect. well, this is my mother-in-law, and she was as old as the year, so she was 24 in 1924, when she was married. and i have a feeling that perhaps this was a special wedding present from her husband. i just wonder. it isn't the sort of thing parents would give. oh, no. far too-- far too flippant i would have thought for a parent. but, um, for a husband maybe. it might have been a wedding present. now, let's just have a look here, because i can see on a lot of the pots and the devices and the buffer and so on there's the initial "n." "n." she was nell. wonderful. her name was ellen but she was known as nell. and the hallmarks... well, they're different. i can see their different. they're very tiny. not easy to see. i can see they date from about 1926 through to about 1929. oh, so-- so it couldn't have been a wedding present, so, not a wedding present, but maybe an anniversary present or the birth-of- a-child present. but tell me a little bit about nell. i mean, it's lovely to hear a daughter-in-law saying that she was a lovely mother-in-law.
legislation is a new tax under president obama's health care reform law that a 3.8% medicare surcharge on investment income for individuals making more than $200,000 a year and families making more than $250 # ,000. the tax increase to hit almost all taxpayers, lower income as well as upper income, is the expiration of the payroll tax cut from the last two years, and that is the main thing that is increasing taxes for households earning $100,000 to $200,000 a year. that's the income bracket we look at at this hour. according to the tax policy center, they go up, on average, by about $1800 a year as social security withholding rises to, back up to 6.2 #% this year from 4.2% the last couple of years. melissa? >> all right, peter barnes, thank you so much. >> uh-huh. >> keep it here on fox business. in the next hour, what it means for individuals making $200,000 to $500,000. full coverage of all peter's reports also on foxbusiness.com because a lot do not realize that their taxes have gone up overnight, even if they don't make more than $400,000 or $450,000. >> this is not even the taxes
they want to bill, the infrastructure, the programs they make into law. guest: i think james hits on the virtue of a flat tax, having a low, single rate, getting rid of all the loopholes in the tax code and having the government learn to live within its means. that would take some time, but it is eminently doable with positive reforms on the entitlement for younger people. you do not have to change the benefit formulas for those on medicare or social security or who are about to go on those systems. as younger people know, those systems are headed for a crash. the sooner we reform them in a positive way, the better. the key to do it is not by raising taxes, but by having a low single rate and they learn to live within it. i think you'll have a much more prosperous country for it. host: let's end where we started. what do you think the best solution in your personal view and your business view is to the fiscal cliff situation? guest: aside from not doing something foolish and the next three or four days -- that is why i do not mind kicking the can down the road -- would be to follo

. >> with that perspective, now that the affordable care act will begin to become fully finalized into law over the next couple years, we keep hearing those on the conservative side is concerns about what it will do to the country. what are your concerns? will this be a good thing? >> yes, it will. right now, we have $50 billion a year of uncompensated care. people who do not have insurance, do not have medicaid, medicare, private insurance, mode carry coverage, they are not insured. they have access to health care in emergency rooms and if they cannot pay, and they do not go to bankruptcy, it costs -- the care does not go away. it is shifted to the rest of us who do have insurance. $50 billion. it could be as much as $1,500 per person. paying for those who do not. you have everybody in the system all injured one way or another, then the uncompensated care goes away. it is no longer borne by those of us who are beneficiaries of an insurance program. that alone is a hidden tax people do not focus on unless it is pointed out to them. it raises the cost to everyone else. the fact never gets talked about. s
enshrines, i think, a principle into law that will remain in place as long as i am president. the deficit needs to be reduced in a way that's balanced. everyone pays their fair share. everyone does their part. that's how our economy works best. that's how we grow. >>steve: the good news for the republicans is the president had ran on the theory, okay, in my second term i'm going to raise rates on millionaires and billionaires. and mitt romney is a horrible person. you can't possibly elect him. >>brian: mitt romney is the guy with the car elevator and the dancing horse. >>steve: what this is going to do is this is going to take away from the president because we have raised taxes on the most successful, that particular argument. the republicans stand for this. looming ahead is a gigantic show down overt sequester, gigantic budget cuts. >>brian: two months. >>steve: plus the debt ceiling. the republicans feel they have the upper hand on that. meanwhile, we've got a little montage of some of the tempers flaring and nostrils as well on capitol hill as lawmakers made the sausage known as the c
% of the boat. the government agrees -- there's a lot, under greek law whatever party comes in first, take a step back, greece has proportional representation that deserves a word of comment. proportional representation is the peculiar idea that if you get a certain percentage of the vote in an election, you should have the same percentage of delegates in congress that right the laws. it you didn't do that you exclude the 18% that had a role to play in governing which you think is the idea. in european countries we have proportional representation. if you get more than usually a cut off of 5% to get whatever the percentage of your vote is that is how many seats you get. you all understand i assume we don't do that in united states. if you get 51% of the vote you get it all and 49% wage. we have had proportional representation in the united states in the past. when you read about primary, and they a gets 20 delegates for the convention and candidate b, that is proportional, they get an equal number of delegates, we actually recognized in the united states proportional representation, we jus
into law. if you're among republicans is if you reach an agreement now and agree to tax increases, the spending cuts will get undone or never will be followed through on. that's one of the things that has held back talks, because republicans are skeptical that democrats will follow through. host: charles is on the independent line from colorado. caller: good morning, steve. i listened to it the myopic dogma in this segment over and over. the only people i can blame on this are the american people. the people who sit here and listen to these guys that are extremists and and they vote him into office -- them into office. i hear people say let's get rid of epa. if you look at how much epa takes out of our budget, that's like worrying about nothing gary people need to turn off the tv and start studying more. crack some books. look at economic spirit trickle-down economics does not work. name a country where it has worked? maybe estonia. but it's not working in greece. i heard a great saying that says when time gets tough, everyone is a keynesian. turn off the tv. not c-span of course.

that defend the united states of america and i'm proud of them. they have things like our federal law enforcement. with our federal law enforcement, if, in fact, we go into this meat ax approach, over 7,500 positions -- because it will come out of personnel -- will be affected. this could affect as many as 3,000 federal agents. 3,000 federal agents of the f.b.i., d.e.a. and a.t.f. now, they might not be laid off but they're going to be furloughed. they're going to have short-term furloughs. this is going to have a direct impact on morale, a direct impact on mission and it will have a direct impact on protecting the american people whether it's from cyber threats, border control threats, all the things that they do. the federal bureau of investigations, the department of drug enforcement, these are absolutely important. then the other area is in homeland security. we could reduce the mission hours at the coast guard by as much as 50%. now, the coast guard is absolutely crucial related to drug addiction -- interdiction dicks, not addiction, drug interdiction, and also protecting our boa
the across the board budget cuts that are called for under current law, but we want some cuts if we're going to agree to tax increases. that's a key republican demand. so all of those things are in play. each movement in any one part affects the others and we'll vus have to s just have to see where it comes out including capital gains and dividends which is i'm assuming would go 20%. that's down from 39.6 which is where they would go under current law if we go over the cliff. but it's up from 15 in both areas from where we are right now. >> last question, john, and i'll make this question. if we're talking about things like capital gains and seques r sequester, does that mean we have moved past the biggest elephant in the room, that being income levels at which taxes increase? >> i don't think we've moved past it because until they announce what a level is and until the other parts of the puzzle get settled, we can't know that for sure. and the other thing we can't know for sure is how many republicans will vote with the democrats both in the senate and in the house and will john boehner pu
these laws. we pass appropriation bills and then it's the executive branch's responsibility to carry them out. how do we think we can pass these laws and then expect people to carry these laws out with efficiency and effectiveness when we take $100 billion out of their compensation? what kind of a message does that send to the people who serve us directly and all of the american people's interests in terms of their ultimate mission? it sends all the wrong message. now, i know people don't care much about the procedural issue, but, boy, you know, what a precedent to set. mr. issa: if the gentleman will yield? mr. moran: yes. mr. issa: it was posted last night which means it was posted before the cliff bill. the technical dropping is a different rule, but it was posted so it was available to all members last night. and, of course, as you know, it's a very simple -- we simply freeze, and that's not hard for people to understand. i hope the gentleman understands half percent freeze is all that this bill does. mr. moran: if the gentleman would yield 30 seconds he took to explain. you dropped it at

are ripped from the headlines, just like an episode of "law and order." a couple of weeks ago, there was a piece in the "washington post" saying that auto sales saved the economy in 2012. the highest number of new vehicles sold since the financial crisis. in today's "wall street journal" we see another headline, u.s. auto sales forecast to break 15 million in 2013. when do they suggest the number of vehicles sold this year could be closer to 15.4 million. cn cnbc's own phil lebeau was saying it could be 15.5 million. tomorrow i think we're going to find out about december sales numbers and it's going to be terrific. hurricane sandy wrecked hundreds of thousands of cars that need to be replaced. bloomberg surveyed a bunch of analysts and they're predicting a 9.8 increase for december. put it together and the domestic auto market is clearly on fire. in fact, it's giving rise to maybe just maybe one of my best ideas for 2013. we still got a tremendous amount of pent-up demand in the country. the average car on the road is ancient, 11 years old. it's now easy to get a loan for a n

anything there to address mass murders, whether it is more gun control or changes to the mental health laws or access to mental health or violence in the media? senator? >> i believe we are going to certainly try. let me respond to lindsey about the murder rate. over 9,000 people are killed with guns a year. where there aren't guns there isn't that murder rate. 9,000 people. that is a lot of people. secondly, i think we have come to a point where these mass murders, the grievance killers that go out there, that get the most sophisticated weapon they hands on andget their happens go in movie theaters, malls, offices, businesses and schools and mow down people, you have to have some appropriate controls on these weapons. now, lindsey may feel safer because he has an ar 15. i don't know. that is up to him. he would not be affected by this. but i think having a system where these very powerful weapons as a matter of fact, the bushmaster has a legal slide you can put ton to make it fully automatic and just pump out slews of bullets at a given time. >> chris: i want to give senator graham an oppo
, but the house of representatives and signed into law by the president. >> there's so many contentious details here. any one of them might trip this up, but there are two big pillars we're talking about today more than anything else. the first one seems to have been successful. it has to do with the idea of where you're going to put the threshold for maintaining the bush tax cuts. the republicans wanted to maintain the bush tax cuts for everyone. the white house said no, not for everyone. we want to do it for middle income people, but wealthier people can pay more. the president wanted to say anybody making over $250,000 as a couple in this country should pay more. they should go to a higher level of tax rates. however, the republicans by and large said they didn't want anybody to pay more taxes, but some said, if you're going to pay more, let's make it a million dollars a year or more. where we are is somewhere down around here, around $450,000 a year per couple. this seems to be largely one of the coups today where the parties seem to agree that this is the cut-off point. i say that tentativ
a personal exemption phase out in this law which limits your ability to take tax exemptions such as your kids. those are almost entirely phased out by $500,000 worth of income, and then there's something known as pease which is named after the congressman who invented it, a cap on your deductions for over 250,000, so that they don't have so many deductions they escape tax liability all together. if you make $300,000 a year, you're 50,000 over the threshold and a formula is applied to all of the deductions. in this case you have to subtract about 1,500 bucks off your itemized deduction tote a. that's an across-the-board haircut on deductions so it's going to impact everything you typically deduct, like your mortgage or charitable giving or anything. both of these new taxes hit people well below the much publicized $450,000 limit. that's going to surprise some taxpayers come next year, bill. >> once again, another bill that is a tax accountant employment act. >> absolutely. >> right? >> financial planners, too. >> thanks for understanding pease. >> p-ase be with you. >> if you generate income o
